Though we are an online retailer, the people behind Jacob Time have been in the watch industry for over 25 years. A family owned and operated company, Jacob Time, Inc. has become one of the biggest timepiece distributors in New York after decades of growth. While our service continues to become more convenient thanks to the constant evolution of the online marketplace, our core values remain the same. We were founded to provide the best watches in the industry for affordable prices, and that has not changed today. From Armani watches to Citizen watches, all of our products are backed by a history of great service.
Due to the expenses involved, some large orders will be subject to be verified by either email or phone prior to shipping. All orders verified before 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time are shipped the same day, provided goods are in stock. To ensure that orders placed online prior to 12:00 PM EST will ship the same day, please be prepared to contact or be contacted by Jacobtime.com.

We are no longer shipping to every country. This is a partial list of countries that we are not shipping to anymore:
Please note: Standard International shipping is $45.00, which includes UPS Expedited with insurance and a 3-5 business day delivery time. This does not include any taxes or duties. Duties are the sole responsibility of the customer. We do not have any way of calculating the cost of import taxes or duties placed on any package that leaves our warehouse. The taxes may very well cost 50% to 100% of the invoice or more. They are placed on items by your own government and you must contact your customs office to find out if they will apply and what they will be. If you deny the goods, we will still hold you responsible for all shipping associated costs, including and duties charged to our UPS account.
We receive all of our products from authorized dealers and/or distributors. All of our products are brand new and authentic with all original parts, including the manufacturers box and all tags and documents. Some of our watches do not come with the manufacturer's warranty card and/or documents, however all watches are covered under our 2 year warranty. We do not sell refurbished, returns or replicated goods. Any item that comes with a manufacturer supplied serial number will retain that serial number. We do not sell any items with removed serial numbers. We do not have the pricing boundaries that are placed on authorized dealers and therefore are able to present you the same products at a very competitive price.
Due to the fact that Jacobtime.com is not an authorized dealer for most brands, we offer our own warranty on all wristwatches purchased from our company. We currently offer a warranty on watches only. Invicta watches carry the Manufacturer warranty and will be repaired directly by the manufacturer.
Aside from Invicta Watches, every watch that is repaired through the warranty is serviced through the
Jacobtime.com service center. Jacobtime.com will service any watch bought from
our website for 2 years after purchase. This is a commitment that we guarantee
we will stand up to, without any hassle on your part. Our warranty covers any
defect in the movement that surfaces during the course of 2 years, which is
not caused by the wearer. This does not include any defect that would not be covered by the manufacturer. In addition, this includes a watch that stops working, or does
not function the way it should. We do not offer a warranty on damage that results
due to every day wear and tear. Our warranty does not cover broken crystals
(glass face), dents, scratches, any cosmetic damage or breakage that occurs
after the watch is received. Dead batteries will be replaced for the first 3
months, by shipping the watch back to us. We can also ship a new battery to
you, if you wish to bring the watch to your local watch service center.
Jacobtime.com is located in New York, and therefore every order shipped to a New York State address are subjected to 8.875% sales tax. The shipping address is the address that determines the tax status and not the billing address.
Most of our watches are water resistant, however, the water resistance level does vary with each watch. In general, if a watch does not come with a screw down
crown and caseback, it is not recommended to be submerged at all. In addition, the general class of water resistant watches are not intended for, nor should they be worn when showering.
They should never be exposed to the direct flow of water under pressure (i.e. faucet, shower, garden hose).
Below is a chart, for reference only, which will give some idea of the level of water resistance your watch will have:
|Water resistance rating||Suitability||Remarks|
|Water Resistant or 30m||Suitable for everyday use. Splash/rain resistant. NOT suitable for swimming, snorkeling, showering, water related work and fishing.||NOT suitable for diving.|
|50m||Suitable for swimming, white water rafting, non-snorkeling water related work, and fishing.||NOT suitable for diving.|
|100m||Suitable for recreational surfing, swimming, snorkeling, sailing and water sports.||NOT suitable for diving.|
|200m||Suitable for professional marine activity and serious surface water sports.||NOT suitable for diving.|
|Diver's 100m||Minimum ISO standard (ISO 6425) for scuba diving at depths NOT suitable for saturation diving.||Diver's 100m and 150m watches are generally old(er) watches.|
|Diver's 200m or 300m||Suitable for scuba diving at depths NOT suitable for saturation diving.||Typical ratings for contemporary diver's watches.|
|Diver's 300+m for mixed-gas diving||Suitable for saturation diving(helium enriched environment).||Watches designed for mixed-gas diving will have the DIVER'S WATCH L M FOR MIXED-GAS DIVING additional marking to point this out.|
